  1. If you remove all interests from your web profile, the system will not be able to suggest you to other people with similar interests. Also, they have recently changed the privacy setting options, so it is now possible to make your own feed so restrictive that nobody can post comments on your profile. There are still other things that they need to do, but by taking those two steps you can go a long way towards effectively disabling the system.
  2. You do anything you want. This is not a game, so there are no rules, there's no goal, there are no points to earn. It's life, sort of like being on vacation in a different country. (Well, OK, a country where you can fly and teleport and be a dragon if that's what you want to do......). You explore, you make friends, you create things, you relax. And here's how you do them >>> http://secondlife.com/support/quickstart/basic. Welcome to Second Life, Marnoor. :smileyhappy:

That is, i need to place anims on a prim, u sit on it or wear it, and then it plays the animation list automatically. With timer, for example: anim1: 5,3s, anim2: 12,13s... etc. etc. I'm not a scripter, so forgive my dumb questions... How difficult it'd be to modify this script to do that? Thanks, if you bother to answer Sorry, I didn't spot your note until just now. You shouldn't have any trouble doing that. It's basically a matter of adding a timer event to take the place of the touch_start event. It would trigger the next animation every X seconds just as if you had clicked the stand. You'd probably want to keep just enough of the touch_start event to use as a switch to toggle the timer on and off. If all you want is a stand that cycles through the animations in its inventory, though, you can probably write a stripped down script that's simpler even than this one to do the job.
  4. It's the friend permissions bug that we've all been dealing with since early July >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Second-Life-Server/Known-issue-with-granting-revoking-permissions/td-p/975953. Just be patient. The bug has already been fixed on Blue Steel sims and will be repaired across the grid as the next version of server software is rolled out this week.
  5. The easiest way is to just look inside with your camera and find something to sit on. Once you are in, set that spot as HOME so that you always TP there when you type CTRL + Shift + H. ETA: Oh, if you can't find something to sit on.... rez a cube temporarily and sit on it.
  6. Bras, no. Even when you aren't flying, though, cams can tell when you aren't wearing anything under your skirt. That much underwear is not optional. :smileytongue:
  7. That's because it has nothing to do with lag. It's an LOD issue. See the answer that the OP accepted, above.
  8. It's a little hard to tell from what you wrote whether you are talking about AOs (Animation Overriders) or the animations that are in them. An AO is usually a HUD. If that's what yours is, you'll see it as an icon on your screen. If you are using a viewer like Phoenix or Firestorm that has a built-in AO, you may have it activated instead. In addition, you may be wearing scripted objects like shoes that have animations in them. If you have several of these objects activated at once, the animation that takes precedence at any time depends on exactly what you are trying to do (sit? fly? dance? ???) and what the priority level of each animation is. It can all get terribly confusing -- especially if you have set up one or more of the objects incorrectly. The smart thing to do is to either remove or deactivate all but one of the AOs and scripted attachments and see how the remaining one works. If you're lucky, you may be able to identify them by looking in the Worn tab in your inventory. Once you have experimented to find out what they each do, wear (or activate) ONLY the one that you actually want to use at any given time. For example, when you find out what your child AO can do, deactivate or remove all other AOs when you are doing kid stuff. If your experiments tell you that you have animations that you like in more than one AO, consider combining them into just one of them.

  11. That's not easy at all, if you actually mean that you want an av to carry the prim in its hands and then place it somewhere. Doing that would require a custom animation and a bit of scripting. It would be much easier if you bypassed that step entirely, since the important part of the exercise is what happens on the circuit board. Just have the person drag or rez the component to any one of a dozen or so predetermined spots on your circuit board (perhaps by clicking on the spot to identify it with a function like llDetectedLinkNumber or llDetectedTouchPosition, depending on the design of your project). The rest of the job -- telling whether that was the right spot and notifying the person -- is trivial scripting.
  12. A good opinion question like this really ought to go in the General Discussion forum. What we can tell you is to go browsing in (http://www.shoutcast.com/ ). Personally, I just wander around SL, listening for streams that I like. When I hear one I like, I copy down the URL. You can see those in About Land >> Audio or in your stream filter.
  13. Try asking the LL Billing Office. Toll-Free (US/Canada) 800.294.1067 Long-Distance 703.286.6277 LL's Billing team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  14. You can't. Ever. It's like your RL Social Security number or a really bad tattoo. It's yours for life. You can either open a new account (an alt) and choose a different username there, or you can create a Display Name that many people will see in world in addition to (or instead of) your username. It's like a nickname. Just like in RL, you can't use a nickname on anything official but your friends and family will know that's what you want to be called.

  15. Well, there's a problem I haven't seen before. I have just spent some time digging in the JIRA reports and it doesn't look as if anyone else has encountered it either. So.... Log in to http://jira.secondlife.com and click the + Create Issue link at the upper right of the page. In the drop-down menu, identify this as a Viewer issue and a Bug. Then go ahead and fill out a report. Include as much information as possible about your own computer, viewer, and the problem you are having so that the developers have a good idea of where to start. You can click to watch activity on the issue as other people add comments or as developers work on solving it. Some JIRA issues are solved quickly; others linger for ages. You can be sure, though, that it problem will never be fixed if LL doesn't know about it.

They don't know for sure where you are and you are in limbo until they figure it out..
  17. You may carrying way too much baggage with you. When you cross a sim boundary, the servers you are leaving behind have to tell the servers you are headed toward all about you. If you are carrying a lot of scripts and physical objects (a vehicle?), there can be too much for the servers to handle for a short time, so you "rubber band" across the boundary or you sink into the ground and walk aimlessly into oblivion. If you're lucky, the servers get their act together and figure out where you are. If not, you crash. Sometimes there's nothing you can do to help. Busy sims -- lots of people, lots of scripts, lots of textures -- already put stress on the servers, so it doesn't take much to make everyone trip when they cross the boundary. Other times, you can improve your life by simply leaving a lot of unnecessary baggage at home.
  18. See? I figured you'd have a great answer, Innula.
  19. We're all SL residents here, not Lindens,so we have no power to unblock your account. All you can do is file a support ticket at https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/ (Select the Account Issue option) and explain your situation as clearly and dispassionately as you have here.
  20. That little bit at the tip of your shoes? That an LOD issue. If you are using the Firestorm viewer, click the Quick Preferences button on your lower taskbar and set the LOD factor higher.... to something like 3.5 . If you are using any other viewer, you can make the same change by opening your Advanced menu (CTRL + Alt + D) and then the Debug Setting window. Type RenderVolumeLODFactor to open the window for that setting and change the number there.
  21.

  22. A better question, I think, is what do you want it to look like? Start Googling for house pictures or go to your local newsstand and pick up copies of Architectural Digest or any of the zillion trade magazines that cater to home buyers/builders/rmodelers. Or, just drive around town and look out the window. The world is full of houses to get ideas from.
  23. You should have received notecard instructions with the AO. If you can't figure out what to do from them, you're going to have to contact the creator or merchant from whom you got the AO. It sounds like a problem that is specific to that product.
  24. If you purchased the item from a shop in world, go to your Dashboard at http://secondlife.com and open Accounts >> Transaction History to get a record of your purchase. If you bought from Marketplace, open Marketplace and click the My Marketplace menu at the top of the page. Select My Account >> Order History from the pulldown menu. Records from Marketplace may not show up immediately in your Transaction History, even though the amount has been debited from your account. If you do not receive items within about 24 hours, you should cut and paste the information about a missing item from that Transaction History or Order History and send it in a IM or notecard to the merchant, along with a polite message requesting redelivery. Most merchants are very kind and willing to redeliver. This happens all the time and they are aware of it. Do be patient, though. Not everyone logs in to SL every day or checks their e-mail. If you still haven't heard in another day or two, follow it up with a second polite note and finally, if you STILL haven't heard, file a support ticket at https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/ , selecting Marketplace from the pulldown menu.
  25. LOL .... the facetious answer is .... <insert drum roll here> ..... install the latest version of V2. <rim shot> :smileyvery-happy: The real answer is that you use a viewer that supports the RLV commands that allow other people to control your avatar. Then you just need to have friends with the right scripts to animate you against your will. If we're lucky, Innula Zenovka will stop in here and give you precise information.
